[Neowin] AT&T: "Our Users Wanted Data Caps" - Page 5  

post #41 of 216
Lucky for me I have the original unlimited data plan from AT&T. Signed my original contract before they switched over to the Unlimited to an extent and I just keep renewing it. I make sure to stream Pandora Radio on my phone on a daily basis.

It would be nice if the same was required of politicians.
Agreed, but it's not going to change. They should be held to a higher standard. Unfortunately, they aren't even held to one as high as the average blue collar worker. Worse even, it's all purposefully overlooked 99.99999994% of the time.

Take the oil industry as a prime example. They're posting record profits atm, whilst prices are through the roof. Who, pray tell, do you think has vast holdings in said companies? And yet, the only persons ever successfully prosecuted for price gouging are the Mom & Pop businesses. Do as I say, not as I do...

Double standards make me sick.

This is for home internet.

And don't worry. AT&T is currently going through their off-contract mobile subscribers, and enforcing signage of a new contract, subject to their current terms. Happened to my sister and brother in law, and soon there will be none of these "grandfathered" plans to speak of.

I loved the iPhone for years but didn't get one until I could get it on Verizon. Glad now more than ever, I do NOT like AT&T never have. Used to have internet with them, it was expensive and slow.

Comcast has had data caps for far longer than AT&T -login to your account page and you will see what I mean. At least on my account I see it at the top right under the Account and Settings tab. 250GB

Answering No to "Do you want the terrorists to win?" also answers No to "Should we implement data caps?".

Better question, "Do you want the terrorists to be brought to justice".

You crazy conspiracy theorists. It doesn't take anything close to as complicated for AT&T to come up with the statement they just made. Let me show you how...

AT&T: Hey customer, do you think you should pay less for data than other customers who use more than you?

Customer: Duh. Why wouldn't I want to pay less than them.

AT&T *writing*: Customer wants other customers who use more bandwidth to pay more than they do.
